We’ve lost a few major players in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ and ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ but you shouldn’t get your hopes up that they’ll be returning anytime soon. ‘Avengers: Endgame’ co-writer Christopher Markus has let audiences know that those who have died, for the most part, will stay that way.
Let’s just ignore the Disney+ ‘Loki’ and ‘Scarlet Witch and Vision’ shows while keeping that in mind. Thankfully, Markus does address the latter:
“It’s the nature of the MCU. It’s not a place where you can reboot one, and suddenly Iron Man is 15 years old, and everyone else is still the same age. The characters have to pass out, and the universe has to still stand. So if you’re going to take people off the board, they’ve got to go for real. Granted, these are movies. I understand that somebody has made some kind of announcement that has the word ‘Vision’ in it, so I mean…”
Of course, we do know that Shuri was working hard to backup Vision’s mind prior to Thanos killing him in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and Scarlet Witch can use magic so between the two, his resurrection may be possible for the upcoming Disney+ series. As to Loki, it is highly speculated that we’ll be seeing the one who jumped away with the Space Stone in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and whatever his adventures after that were. With that in mind, it could also throw Captain America into that mix to restore the timeline and be how he learns about his fate and finds a way to prevent The Mad Titan from actually killing him.
Only time will tell.
With all of the living Avengers, those we can expect to be added on both Earth and the cosmic side of things, as well as the eventual inclusion of the “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” it really seems that there wouldn’t be a need to find a way to reboot any aspect of the MCU to bring these characters back in the foreseeable future.
Are you glad to hear that death will have some form of importance to the Marvel Cinematic Universe if your name isn’t Agent Phil Coulson? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
